What is Baltic Amber? Our Recommendations

What is Baltic amber?

Baltic amber is a fossilized tree resin estimated to be millions of years old. This amazing substance has been used for centuries in the Baltic region to relieve a wide range of discomforts and inflammation, and to strengthen the body's immune system.  Baltic amber has been utilized for these purposes since the time of Hippocrates (known as "the father of modern medicine") around 400 BC. 

Our customers have told us Baltic amber has helped take the edge off discomforts and symptoms associated with:  dental issues (such as the emergence of new teeth, orthodontic brace adjustments, jaw disorders), growing pains, allergies, sensory disorders associated with autism, headaches and migraines, arthritis, pins and needles feelings/numbness in the hands, neck and shoulder discomfort, tendonitis, menstrual cramping, restless leg syndrome, back and knee discomfort, joint pain from chemotherapy, and many more. 

Why are there so many different colors of amber?
The different colors of amber are in-part a reflection of its history and contact with its environment.  A few of the factors contributing to the differences in color are the amount of microscopic air bubbles present.  When air bubbles make up more than 50% of the background the amber can be completely white. This also determines the level of transparency or opacity of the amber.

The color of amber is also affected by the organic remains left trapped inside such as soil and bark. Another factor that affects color is the environment in which the amber spent the bulk of its life.  For example, if the amber has spent the majority of its lifespan in or near a table of ground water this will give the amber more vibrancy and it will retain a lighter color.  Or the amber could have ended up on a sand dune and spent many years being warmed by the sun darkening the amber over time.

What color/style do we recommend?
Our answer is that we do not carry any products that we do not recommend!  While some prefer the lighter colors of unpolished amber as they are typically associated with having higher concentrations of succinic acid, our customers' experiences reveal that all colors and styles provide relief so it is okay to have fun and choose what you like best!
